“Not knowing when the dawn will come I open every door” -Emily Dickinson
Good morning and welcome to my blog! For those who don’t know me, I’m Kari. I’m a young professional living and working in Washington, D.C. My husband and I moved here when I finished grad school in 2012. In grad school I studied mechanical engineering, specifically MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) and parametric resonance (nonlinear dynamics). You can read about that here, if you feel so inclined. In addition to studying, I spent a lot of time developing hobbies and cultivating amazing friendships. My interests, errr passions really, include running, roller derby, cycling, strength training (outside, in the gym or crossfit), and yoga. I’ve spent much of my free time over the last decade learning, experimenting, and trying to become the best version of myself that I can be, at this point in time. Over the next week or so, I’ll write about my experience in each sport and link them as they come online. I don’t want to bog you down on this first entry, if you’re like me you’ll appreciate short, concise posts and organization.
I’ve started this blog to share with the world how I apply my critical thinking to my personal interests, in a quest to be the best me that I can be. Most of what I’ll be talking about is fitness and lifestyle. I’ll be reviewing the books and articles I’ve read, sharing my goals, and explaining my current self-exploration/experimentation. I’m also participating in the April writer’s U, so I will probably post some of my assignments here too. I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts and trials with you! Feel free to comment here or on social media (links on your right).
